Think the Bourne franchise meets the Bond franchise, without the wit or action. full review

Scott Bowles, USA Today

[A] dippy hodgepodge of hitman action, illogical romance and geopolitical commentary. full review

Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times

Why is Slater in this? Why are Sutherland and Spall? Why am I even watching it? full review

Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger

Corny action scenes and borderline-hilarious direction by Isaac Florentine mark the film as an obvious straight-to-video item that somehow took a wrong turn into a movie theater. full review

Kyle Smith, New York Post

Mr. Slater valiantly tries to appear turned on by his leading lady's shimmying midsection, but he might as well be watching a performing dog for all the heat mustered between them. full review

Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times

This psychologically tinged thriller about a mysterious female assassin won't erase memories of La Femma Nikita. full review

Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter

Much of this makes little sense, but it's hard to care. full review

Dennis Harvey, Variety

The cockeyed C-quality B movie, shot on location with a Balkan supporting cast and crew, mixes a precarious pileup of visual cliches with over-staged action sequences. full review

Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly

Fans of incessant flashbacks and endless whooshing zooms into close-ups will find much to love about Assassin's Bullet; less satisfied, alas, will be those with a fondness for lucid plotting, compelling intrigue, and credible performances. full review
